Rotowire: May 12 / 9:49a ET
News: Jeffress appeared in his league-leading 19th game Monday and recorded his second hold of the season.
Impact: Jeffress has been particularly active lately, pitching seven times in the first 11 days of May. He has held up well, giving up just two earned runs in 6.1 innings (2.84 ERA) this month and six earned runs in 17 innings (3.18 ERA) overall. Despite the quality results, expect him to continue pitching in middle relief for the Brewers.
Rotowire: Apr 23 / 8:54a ET
News: Jeffress owns a 2.45 ERA and 5:5 K:BB ratio in 7.1 innings over eight appearances out of the Brewers' bullpen.
Impact: Jeffress was a darkhorse closer candidate early this spring, but with Francisco Rodriguez back on the roster, he is working in a middle relief role for the Brewers. Jeffress has not been particularly sharp early in the season, but he has been able to limit the damage.
Rotowire: Mar 23 / 9:49a ET
News: Jeffress has given up two earned runs (2.35 ERA) while posting a 6:5 K:BB ratio in 7.2 innings over six appearances this spring.
Impact: Jeffress has pitched well this spring, and even better of late, giving up just two walks and no hits over his last four innings. It's unlikely he will open the season with a prominent role in the Brewers' bullpen, but he is essentially a lock to make the team, and should be a factor in the middle relief mix.
